We spent a day of our KY trip paying respects to Abraham Lincoln. This restaurant was named for Lincoln's uncle, I believe, who was killed during an Indian attack. Anyway, dinner was good, and service was friendly.

We rode up on a Saturday for lunch. Wanda was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the restaurant, owner and the area. We plan to return next Saturday evening for the catfish buffet. We also met some new friends as we were leaving.

If you are looking for good and reasonable food then this is the place to come. The staff is friendly and you can order from the menu but the buffet is very tempting. Good ole country cooking and my personal favorite the fish is delicious....More

While Springfield may be small with limited places to eat, they have a jewel in Mordecai’s. We’re in the area working so I found them on TripAdvisor since we had never been there. Excellent food on the buffet and it changes daily. 👍👍for Mordecai’s

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel hostess. We all four got the soup and salad bar. It was pretty average. Everything felt greasy...table, menus.... Wouldn't go back.
